YOGA and nutrition
When we open our bodies and minds to new forms of exercise the opportunities are boundless.
Even if you’ve never tried yoga, in Siâns hands your yoga practice works hand in hand with your time on the mountain to allow you back up the next day with no aches and pains. We will finish every day on the mountain with a restorative opening practice.
Good nutrition is essential when you expect your body to carry you for a day on the mountain. Working with qualified food specialists we have made a menu to ensure you will tap into your deepest energy source and continue to keep your body going day after day.
